    I had the same question and after reading posts in the match forum what i found out is that nobody really knows, because it depends not only on your scores but also if you passed first attempt or not, what state you want to do the residency, what hospital, if you have clinical experience, research publications, letters of recommendation/connections.
    For FMG which is not your case visa, etc. Even if you speak other languages -spanish for the states that border Mexico for example- would be considered. So even if the score is very important, thats not all and other factors play an important role in being chosen or not. Fortunately IM is not as competitive as radiology or other surgical residency according of what i've read.
    I would recommend besides getting good scores of course to do a superbe job in your clinical rotations and get letters of recomendation. Also maybe if you post this in the following forum more people will reply:
